Marko (3769) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle from the Albert Hypermarket in Chodov, Prague
Poured a dark red/black body with a tan head that went away slow leaving nice lacing. Weak nose, some maltiness I guess. Sweetish roasty malty taste. Very very light bitterness. Gets drier near the end. Definitely will rerate.

Argonian (247) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark, almost black body, with an average light brown head that stays until I finish my glass. Faint caramelish aroma, light sweet taste, notes of caramel. Soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, oily texture. Decent, but a little light, wanted it to be more flavoursome.

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Bottle (bought at the brewery): Dark amber coloured, huge rocky brownish head, very long lasting; only shy malty nose with some fruity traces, too, and - yes - a touch of "cellulose-thinner" ! Weak sweetish maltiness in the beginning, slight bitter-malty taste, distinctive bitterness (cacao, chocolate) in the longer lasting finish; not bad, but rather thin for a 13° (5,2% ABV) brew, only small aroma....and brewed by the use of an ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER ("s umelym sladitlem") ! Presumable the reason for this cellulose-thinner aroma ?

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2011
Bottled. a golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw, leading to a bitter finish.

Gurthnar (1245) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 7, 2013
Tap at Hostinec Richtar Jakub. Aroma almost nonexistent, watery. Taste mostly coffee, light sugary caramel. Clear cola colour, off-white head, full duration. Finish is light coffee bitter. It is in the neutral grey industrial zone.

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2007
The bottle looks good, but the coloures should be combinded better. There’s not much foam in the glass. The beer starts very vapid, becomes a little bit drier in the middle, but the finish in nearly washy. An average beer.
